Tips to Getting Consistent Traffic to Your Website

Update your site. This is probably the single most important element to getting consistent traffic. After all, if you don’t show your site some love, then why should Google?

And it’s not just search engine traffic that you’ll help out by updating. The more you update your site, the better your chances of being blogged about, socially bookmarked, or being linked to on a related site.

But as for Google, consistent updates-and the links that come with it-show that your site is relevant. It shows that its part of the conversation and today’s Web 2.0 is all about conversation.

Google loves fresh, user-generated content. Authority is still important, but recency is important nowadays, too. If you post new content-web pages, blog posts, or both-on a regular basis, then you look a whole lot better to Google. (Not to mention, the above-mentioned links that come with content will also show Google and other search engines that your site is in fact relevant.)

Update on a regular basis. Whether you update every day, 2-3 times a week, or once a week, it’s important to stay consistent about it. Stick to a schedule. This will help Google and other search engines know how often to send spiders your way.

Use good tools to make it easy. If you’re not hot on making HTML pages and don’t have the money to hire someone else to do this for you, don’t worry.

If you’re doing a content site, content management systems like Joomla can be a good way to go. WordPress, while originally a blogging platform, is also an excellent content management system.

Or if you’re using an off-site blog, use WordPress and drip-feed it. You can date your articles by when you want them to appear, and they won’t post until the date you’ve set for them. This kind of “working in chunks” makes it easier for you to update. Just write or buy your content, plug it into WordPress, and “set and forget”. Just make sure you note when the last content is set to post, and have some new content ready by then!

Use Web 2.0 sites. Web 2.0 sites like Squidoo and Hubpages tend to index quickly in Google, and often rank really well for their keywords. These pages can drive traffic to your site.

And if you’re using a site like Squidoo, that uses dofollow tags, Web 2.0 sites can also help your site’s general overall ranking, which also will help you get more traffic. Just be sure and consistently add new pages as time goes on.

Getting consistent traffic to your site is doable, and really not that hard – but only if you put in consistent effort!

 

Build Better Blog

First do the keyword research for the blog topic / subject. Finding popular keywords related to your blog or your post topic is must. You will need at least 2-3 keywords to be used in blog title and around 10 keywords for post titles to start with.

Try to use the keywords in domain name, blog title, post title, post content,hyper link, ALT tag, TITLE tag etc.in a natural way.This will help you to get higher search engine ranking.

Try to limit no. of your labels / categories around 20. Use tag cloud or label cloud if you want to save space. If you have many topics on one blog try to regroup and relabel. If totally different topics are mixed on one blog and has sufficient no. of posts for each topic then start new blog for that topic. 4) Do not copy old posts of a blog on new blog.You can get penalized for duplicate content.You need to remove old copy from the search engine and then add same post at new blog.

Use post title optimization widget on this blog for blogger / blogspot blog so that you get better search engine ranking. WordPress bloggers can use plugin like All in one SEO for meta tag and title optimization.

Following are blogging tips related to look and content of the blog.

The look and layout of the blog should be nice, neat and beautiful so that it can create good impression on the visitor and he should feel to stay more and visit again. Content quality should also be good for this.

Navigation and layout should be such that visitor should be able to find the recent posts, labels very easily. So if Recent posts and Labels are near top of side bar it will be visible in first screen of the blog and the visitor will have a quick idea of what the blog is about and can jump to his topic of interest quickly.

Use pictures, images wherever possible to make your post colorful and attractive. Do picture / image optimization as described in my earlier post. No need to use large images, you can use medium to small images.

Loading time of the blog should not be very long or visitor will run away before the page opens. So keep check on what widgets / code you are installing and does it slows down the loading. If you are loading pictures, make sure that the file size is not big. Do not use BMP files, you can use jpg, png files. Also check image size. You can do all this using photoshop. As sometimes images load slower from external sources, check that also.

Blogging tips related to writing and visitors

Write your post after proper research and gathering total information. Do not write too long. Use grouping, paragraph, sub titling for arranging the information in post body.

Writing language should be easy to understand and wherever possible write in humorous way. If visitor enjoys your post he will come back.

Give links to useful resources related to your topic. Also give links to your earlier posts with proper anchor text wherever possible. This improves internal linking of your blog.

Encourage the reader to participate / comment. You can also run some contest or survey on your blog and keep some prize for that.

Use beautiful and professional looking theme / template and header image for your blog. There are many free templates available so you can easily get one suitable to your blog. Choose 3 column template which uses full 1024 X 768 resolution.This gives you more space.

The font color and size should be such that blog should be readable in different screen resolution. Other blogging tips to increase readers and revenue.

Burn your feed at feedburner and provide subscribe via email facility for your RSS feed.

Check your blog visibility and feed in different browser.Especially in internet explorer and Firefox.

Try to increase your RSS feed subscriber and use AdSense for feed to display Google AdSense on the feed.

Use Google AdSense or other advertisements in post body, right hand side bar and below the header. Use AdSense link unit with labels or links or below header. Match background color of AdSense with blog or post background color.

Read my post on blog traffic tips to build traffic from sources other than search engine.

Following are precautionary blogging tips

There should not be many outgoing links (pointing to other websites / blogs) in the post or side bar. Remove unnecessary outgoing links. Place all outgoing links near bottom of right hand side bar or footer.

Do not buy or sell links for link building.

If paid posts are must for you keep it minimum or have separate website / blog for paid posts or articles.

As said above do not write same post again ( duplicate content ). Do not edit old post titles and content for search engine optimization.

Do not have METATAGS only for main home URL of blogger blog, as it will be used for all the post and you will get duplicate metatag error in Google webmaster tools. You are also misguiding and confusing search engine by having same meta tag for all posts. So you can use script / widget which can give different METATAGS to individual posts. WordPress blogger can have METATAG for individual post by using All in one SEO plug-in.

Static Websites vs Blogs

Static websites are those where you would required to create every single page for your end user called as static webpage, these pages need to created individually basis and need to write with HTML or web suitable web-language for programming. To develop any static HTML webpage or entire website from scratch, you would need to use software like Dreamweaver or FrontPage where you can edit and develop page codes for browser. Some software developers still prefer to use notepad for editing/developing websites. HTML is simple web language, you can get free tutorial on w3c schools website if you are not aware of this.

Blogging platform is little bit different than static one. Regular bloggers would required to post content every single days so creating static pages for every post would be tedious work. That’s why CMS platform came in picture. Such platform like WordPress built with such way so that they get organized by dates and categorized with recent content posted by users with use of keywords and tags.

Static websites works with HTML other web language suitable for programming, to develop any static HTML webpage or entire website from scratch, You would need to use a software like Dreamweaver or FrontPage where you can edit and develop page codes for browser.

Blogging websites works on CMS (content management system) platform like WordPress. These types of platform have been developed from user’s point of view to provides simplicity and faster content uploading and updating features. These websites will work with ‘permalink’ features in which you wouldn’t require to develop multiple pages for your articles/content.

Great Blogging Tips

Get a schedule and stick to it

Having a regular and continuous posting schedule serves multiple purposes. It lets your readers know exactly when to expect your pearls of wisdom. You have a lot of competition waiting right out of your door, and more new blogs being started every single day. You can either post 5 days a week or just once. If you specialize in a certain type of information, you may not want to post every day, but you do want to keep your content relevant and fresh. This will keep your readers wanting for more from you. This will also keep you from being totally forgotten by your readers.
Another reason is for the search engines. You want the search bots to get used to a certain schedule and pattern of posting, and then they will regularly come to index your site.

Use Your RSS feed

That leads us to the importance of using your RSS feed. RSS stands for Really Simple Syndication. What you can do is encourage and entice your readers to sign up to your RSS feed, that way they will be informed and updated whenever you post an article. Your article will only be a snippet of-course. And if it catches their interest and intrigues them, they will click on your link and go to your blog. Also, many other blogger’s are looking for new and fresh content. If your posts are something they feel that their readers may be interested in, they will include it on their blogs. This will give you even more exposure and bring you in the spot light.

Stay on topic. Stay informative

If your blog is about the financial market, stick to it. Don’t write an article about erasing carpet stains, unless you can relate it to something financial. I know it may seem natural, but… if you are writing from the point of view of being knowledgeable about a particular subject, make sure you are fully updated with your information. If you are mainly offering your opinion, make sure that it is clear to your readers. It is important that you establish trust.

It’s your reputation

Never endorse or promote a product that you have not personally tried. It will quickly become obvious to every single reader who has tried out a particular product that you are oblivion of what you are writing about. Your readers may not always agree with what you write, but by having an honest and a true opinion and offering factual information you will earn and maintain their respect.

Write with clarity and simplicity

Be absolutely sure that your posts and blog entries are easy to understand and comprehend. What may seem obvious and regular to you may be something completely new to some of your readers. It always drives me totally nuts when somebody writes: “as everybody already knows”. Unless you are a professor who is speaking about a course that you have already run through with every single student present, don’t assume that every reader comprehends and understands what you are speaking about. Also keep in mind that the worldwide web is just that, global. You are able to reach a worldwide audience, so depending on what kind of subjects you are writing about you may want to keep that in mind.

Be sure to do a spell check and proof-read.

Hey, it only takes a click of your mouse to use your spell checker and a few minutes to go over and proof read your article, so do it. Nothing is as ‘unprofessional’ as having a few misspelled words in your article and typo errors. You may also want to consider and rethink what you are writing, especially if you are in a heated moment. Remember that everything you publish on the net is archived and stored and can be found later. So whatever you are writing about, take a moment or even a day, to reflect what you are posting.

Using the right Keywords

this can be a little complex. You need to use the right kind of keywords in your article for the search engines to index your post accurately. If a certain amount of people are searching for some information is using particular keywords, you should make sure to use them in your article, several times if possible. This tells the search engines that you have relevant content that is related to what people are searching for. The trick is not to make it seem to obvious. Be sure to use the keyword in your articles headline.

Quality matters

Look, you just won’t get that many chances with your readers. People can overlook many defects in writing styles and patterns, but the bottom line is that if you don’t offer the kind of information they are expecting and want, they just won’t return back to you. I know I don’t myself. So if you need to, be sure to do some up to date latest research on your subject. Until you become proficient in just being able to articulate off the cuff, take some to plan out your article, or series of articles.

How to Writing a Good Blog Article?

It’s not easy to be a good blogger

Unfortunately, not everyone is good at writing blog articles. We all are different and some people hate writing, still they have an e-commerce website or blog and are forced to write for them. It is pity but here I suggest only trying your best to write at least logically structured text. For people who are really good at writing or at least gifted, there are lots of ways to become a better blog post writer.

Keep an eye on what is happening how

The beauty of running a blog is that blogs as usual focus on news or events happening in the whole world. The first very important tip for every blog article writer is to write about currently discussed topics, hot news. Write about what is happening now, but not about what happened yesterday. No one is interested in what was yesterday or the day before yesterday, people are thirsty for something is new. Impress them with fresh overview of hot trends.

In the event if you are a trainspotter – give it up urgently

This part of the article is about the style of writing and general mind set a nice weblog article writer must have. As I have already told you, every great blogger is interested in hot trends, today’s news and everlasting questions, but not in yesterday garbage. Make sure you write in good English and your style is not boring. If you run a personal blog, you can use even slang words to get closer to your readers.

It mostly depends on your audience. Think of people reading your blog: how elderly they are, what their occupation is, their hobbies, interests, languages, etc. That will help you much if you want to add humor to your blog article. Yes, sense of humor is very much appreciated not only in circus and soap operas. Even Dr. House cracks off jokes all the time – this is why he is so much liked by ladies and men as well, though.

Do not Forget about SEO

Search engine optimization very much comes at hand if you want more readers of your blog article and the whole blog as well. A good blog post is not only interesting article on hot topic, humor stuffed and logically balanced, it is also a search engine friendly text, which makes the page relevant for some particular keywords and key phrases. SEO is a part and partial of successful blogging and every blog owner must know at least the basic of it. I would like to share more tips with you, but the format of the article isn’t suitable to cover all aspects in details.

The only lowdown on this portal is the advertisement parade the site has. The Fact that even a Plus ( Paid ) account displays unwanted ads.
Now is the Time to Announce the Portal which in the author’s opinion is the best in this Business (Paid). It Has to be the Movable Type. It manages to keep all types of its users happy.

Know Things to Consider when Pick a Blog Theme

Blogging programming, for example, WordPress make utilization of “topics” – truth be told, it is WordPress that has made such a huge market with a substantial interest for WordPress subjects. This is valid for WordPress as well as for other blogging stages – both facilitated like Blogger and independent like Movable Type. When you get such a blogging stage introduced or on account of blogger, you agree to accept a blog, you will see that there are various different topics accessible and in addition various modules or gadgets that can help change the general capacity of the site. So how would you pick a blog topic?

There are various things that you have to consider while picking a blog – these “things” are as per the following:

  • SEO – Search Engine Optimisation. You should make sure that your theme is SEO’d well – in terms of ability to add tags, accept trackbacks, include various incoming and outgoing links, include SEO plugins, include ad plugins such as for Google Adsense, has RSS Feeds. There are a number of free and paid SEO focused themes available.
  • SEO – Blogger. When using Blogger, you should change the HTML to change the default ‘nofollow’ added to comments. ForWordPress, comments are ‘dofollow’.
  • Design Customisation. Make sure that the theme you are considering has options that allow you to change the overall design – as far as color schemes and usage of own graphics like logos is concerned.
  • Columns. Make sure that you wisely select the number of columns for your blog – once selected, it is difficult for a person to change such columns. There are 1, 2 or 3 column options. Look at the previews.
  • Customisation – Blogger vs. WordPress. Blogger is much more easier to customize and more flexible as well as easy to maintain since it is a hosted platform – but offers fewer options. WordPress on the other hand is a bit more difficult to customize as it requires some HTML/CSS knowledge and know how although it has a large number of options and plugins.
  • Monetisation – Blogger vs. WordPress. Blogger is easier to monetize – but you may find yourself limited to Google AdSense and the like. WordPress on the other hand is harder to configure for monetization but you have complete flexibility.

 

The Whole Wide World Blog Types

Business blogs

Many professionals and businesses now have blogs. They can allow companies to communicate in a less formal style than has been traditional in newsletters, brochures and press releases, which can help to give a human face and voice to the organization. For individuals in business a blog can become a very effective way of building a network of like-minded individuals and raising their own profiles. Blog Maverick is a good example.

Personal blogs

Many millions of people keep blogs about their everyday lives, much like public diaries. These sometimes become very popular indeed, especially those anonymous, slightly risque ones. You know the sort: they get written about in the Sunday Times and become best-selling novels. One of the best-known personal blogs is Dooce. Political blogs Especially in the US, but increasingly in the UK, blogs are being written about politics. Often perceived as a response to media bias (across the political spectrum) they tend to comment on the news, giving closer analysis of issues they feel have been misrepresented or glossed over by mainstream media. In America most if not all of the contenders for the presidency in 2008 already have bloggers on staff to advise on reaching political bloggers and their readers. We are not quite at that stage in the UK, but blogging has been playing a part in the resurgence of grassroots Conservative politics, and right-of-centre bloggers such as Iain Dale and Guido Fawkes have been making their presence in the UK mainstream media. Influential examples from the political left include MediaLens and Harry’s Place.

‘Almost media’ blogs

Some blogs are unashamedly media businesses in their own right, taking advertising and employing a blogger or a group of bloggers full-time. Effectively, they are startups that are taking advantage of the new blogging technologies and opportunities to build communities of readers in new or niche subject areas. These are generally to be found covering news and opinion in the technology and media industries. Try Businesspundit.com or Hecklerspray.

Mainstream media blogs

Most national newspapers in the UK – not to mention the BBC – now have blogs for some of their reporters and editors. These can provide useful insights into the news gathering and reporting process, but will also give vent to personal views that the journalist may otherwise have kept to themselves. For example, see BBC business editor Robert Peston’s blog. It’s worth noting that while many journalist blogs are hosted on newspaper sites themselves, a large number are independent, personal blogs with a major focus on their professional interests.
